Essential for Songwriting & Performance

by TobyRyan

This is the best Chord sequencer I have used on iOS. It's very intuitive in the sense that you don't need to have a lot of knowledge in music theory to use Navichord.In fact, it'll assist in easily learning how to use the Roman numeral system of chord progressions and creating interesting melodies to go with them. It's fast, it's fun and for advanced users it has MIDI routing to specific channels... It's also Universal! Hope this helps you decide based on some key features I've enjoyed. Party on!


A must have app for any IOS musician...

by Musikman4Christ

I'm so grateful and blessed to have this amazing app. As a mobile musician, this app has made my life so much easier to compose songs on the go. Especially with the latest update which includes Ableton's Link syncing algorithm, AudioBus remote, oh my! This app has definitely become even more of an asset to my music making tools.


Awesome tool!

by Joe Zeno

Just bought and tested Navichord and it does even more than I thought! It replaces my good old Chordion: Multi channel separation, MIDI in and out, MIDI Sync, Ableton Link, scales, multiple input methods, a chordplayer in which you can put your custom chords and a lot more! Another update which respects the users suggestions and adds more comfort, awesome dev! Very nice priced, powerful app. Highly recommended!
